ExEmGe, gypsygirl,

these two requests have been added into the tracking system. development is pretty slow at the moment (something to do with the main developer having a newborn baby...) but they won't be lost.

ExEmGe, something like what you want is here (author, title, language, URL):

Perhaps this isn't the right place to post this, but...

...I went looking for poems by Edwin Arlington Robinson. Typing "Robinson" in the catalogue search produced this:

5 matches
Completed works

1. Edwin Arlington Robinson. "The Mill" (in "Short Poetry Collection 029") · (readers)
2. Robinson, Edward Arlington. "Miniver Cheevy" (in "Short Poetry Collection 021") · (readers)
3. Robinson, Edward Arlington. "Richard Corey" (in "Short Poetry Collection 013") · (readers)
4. Robinson, Edwin Arlington. "Richard Cory" (in "Short Poetry Collection 004") · (readers)
5. Robinson, Edwin Arlington Robinson. "Richard Cory" · (readers)

I see we have poem 1 sorted by given name while 2 to 5 are sorted by surname; poem 5 has the surname twice; poems 2 and 3 misidentify the author ("Edward" instead of the correct "Edwin"); and poem 3 is misspelled ("Richard Corey" instead of the correct "Richard Cory").

Can these be fixed...?

Thanks for your attention.

Almost all of the problems are fixed. Entry 3 still misidentifies the poem as "Richard Corey".

Would it be possible to add a link to the catalog search page from the top set of links, possibly to the right of the wiki link?

Quite often in my travels around the forums I see a book referenced and want to check it out but it is not linked to and it takes a lot of time to go back to the home page then to the search page.

No idea if this has been brought up before... haven't the time right now to scan through this entire topic.

I just realized that the files in the multilingual poetry collections don't show up on language searches because there's no way to mark the language of the individual poems in the compilation data.

There was something that I noticed on the catalog page. The number next to the languages in the select box don't always match the results found.

For instance: English in the select box says there are 995 works, but if you select that language and no other filters, the results page says "968 Matches Found." Some other ones I noticed were Bulgarian, it says there is 1 work, but comes up with 0. And Finnish were it says there are 4, but only pulls up 3. Anyway, a discrepancy I noticed that I figured I'd pass on. Thanks kri, tis!

While mentioning nits to pick, is there a reason that the old catalog pages are being translated?

Haven't had time to look into it yet, Fredrik. So we're still using the template that's in place in the meantime.
